This is one of those rare books that transcends others. 5 stars doesn't even come close!

A friend recommended this to me. I shan't reveal why he'd come to read the book, needless to say he spoke very highly of it. He was right, it is genuinely life changing. The way you think about everyone (not only your girlfriend, boyfriend, wife or husband, but your friends, children, parents, the lot!) can be altered dramatically if you give it a chance. It's aimed at helping you improve your marriage, but in my opinion it does that and much more besides.

It should be entitled - "Everything your parents didn't teach to in preparation for life - because they didn't know it either".

It's not perfect; the author is clearly a) American and b) a devout Christian. He mentions the American Dream and Church attendance more than once in the book. You have to accept this if you are neither of the above, foibles and all. It's repetitive in places too (deliberately, I'd guess) and slightly pious, verging on self congratulatory at times (it IS written by an America don't forget) but none of this should detract from an incredible read.

Whether all of the content is the author's own work or whether they've simply amalgamated a collection of other people's thoughts and theories to form their own, I neither know nor care. The ideas are presented in a highly digestible and practical form which will provoke thought and good nature in all but the most cynical reader.

If nothing else, it's such good value that you've nothing to lose but a few hours of your life, with everything to gain if you approach the content with an open mind.

Try it, you'll not be sorry. Read it, remember it, live by it and teach it to your children.

Fantastic book, very enlightening. I'm not one for self help books but i found it useful. If you want help figuring out what makes you tick in relationships and what you are looking for, then this is the book for you.

It's not just for romantic relationships, it'll help with family relationships, friendships and your relationships with work colleagues etc.

A must read.

It is a Christian book however there are still lots you can get from the book if you're not a Christian.

Not married but this was fascinating from a psychological point of view. Brilliant read for anyone, single married or other.

For those who want their relationships to last or are seeing it going sideways- this will definitely help. However this only really works if both parties want it to work.
This book highlights how people see their own interactions and not with others. A recommended read, if you want to speak the same languages

Quick review: I love this book, been reading it and though it is short (around 200 pages long) it's helpful. I realised it said a lot of things that I already 'knew' but hadn't truly thought about. My relationship is doing a lot better for it and I've realised I AM THE ONE in the wrong. I get a lot of love and support from my partner, and this book made me realise that I was the one that needed to change in order to get a more out of our relationship.

This simple approach to how to show love to your partner is just spot on advice on how to understand your partner and keep the spark on in your relationships.

The parts of how to identify the love language of your partner and the recommendations to fulfilling them are quite poor while the explanations of each love language is just too repetitive. My assumption is that otherwise there wouldn't be enough content for an entire book. It appears quite clear to me that this book is just marketing material for the author's coaching business. Not that this it any less useful. I would recommend it to almost anyone regardless.

This is a good, easy read with loads of examples. His basic idea is that we receive and offer love in 5 different ways, so that two people can be in a relationship, both be offering love in the way that they want to be loved, and neither is feeling loved. By learning our own love languages, and those of our partner, children or friends, we can improve our relationships. The basic ideas have proved very helpful both in my own life and also as a therapist helping my clients. Of course it is not quite that simple. Some people have real problems with the idea that they are lovable, and have problems receiving and offering love. But for many people who do not have that issue that ideas can be put into practise and can help improve relationships.

The information in this book will probably save a lot of failing relationships and marriages, as it really opens your eyes to communicating, appreciation and other love languages that you probably don't know about, or realise how important they are. If you're on that rocky road, buy it, both of you read it, and see how much things improve!
